Health benefits of medicinal mushrooms

Clair Whitty - Naturally Healthy

This week I want to tell you about the health benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms made by Hifas Da Terra, the company I went to visit recently.

I will begin with Mico-Rei, this is an extract of organic Reishi in a very potent form. Reishi is traditionally known as the 'mushroom of eternal youth'. This potent extract is used for situations that are acute or chronic. You need to take the extract for the duration of acute symptoms; once symptoms have improved you can take the 100% Reishi powder capsule.

You would choose Reishi to help you deal with any inflammatory condition including arthritis. It's used to reduce anxiety and stress. It is associated with hormonal imbalance, insomnia, pain reduction, and can improve thyroid function. Because of its high antioxidant content, Reishi helps with the aging process helping you look younger, an amazing mushroom!

Mico-Shii is a highly concentrated extract from Shiitake mushroom. It is best known for its ability to support cardiovascular health, reducing cardiovascular risk. It's an immune modulating mushroom with antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Oh, and it's the best one if you would like a natural aphrodisiac!

I love Mico-Leo, this is an extract of Organic Lion's Mane. The link between gut-brain health is now well established, if we can keep the gut healthy and happy we can have a happy brain. Lion's Mane goes straight to the brain to stimulate gut healing activity. It's a regenerator of nervous tissue and of the tissues that line the gut. Therefore it will help conditions of the gut including gastritis, gastric ulcer, Ulcerative Colitis, and Crohn's. I was interested in the fact that it can help reduce food intolerance and allergies by reducing leaky gut and helping you to become less intolerant to the food that you eat. It can support memory, helping with conditions associated with memory loss including dementia, another fascinating mushroom.

Dr. Leo is a formulation made especially for children; it's syrup that contains Lion's Mane. This is a superb supplement to help children with Attention Deficit disorders. It helps memory and brain development and stimulates gut healing activity, reducing food intolerances.

If you have any questions feel free to pop me an email or give me a call.
